Peterborough Mayor street dances with deaf kids

Mayor (centre) with the kids

Our Summer Play Scheme came to an end on Friday with a visit from the Mayor of Peterborough, Councillor Paula Thacker MBE, who got right involved with the children's street dancing performance. 

Keen to be involved after chatting to some of our volunteers and children, Cllr Thacker took to the dance floor and showed why she is the Mayor who can mash it up! Thanks  to the Mayor and the City Council for their continued support..

The Play Scheme was once again a success with many children attending during the week and taking part in a wide-range of activities, including dance, cookery, artwork, sports and a trip to the seaside.

Managed by our Chairperson, Nicola Epathite, the Play Scheme gives deaf children in the city the chance to meet their friends and have fun in a way that takes into consideration different communication needs. It's the only one of its kind for miles and miles....

A massive vote of thanks and all the volunteers who made the week a success, including Sally Walker from Marshfields School who gave us access to the venue and lots of her time and hard work too. Finally, once again, thanks to Nicola Epathite for her brilliant work in organising and running this event.
